FGS Global handles Providence Equity Partners as it makes a strategic investment in Accelerate Learning, a provider of STEM curriculum for the K-12 education market.

More than 750K teachers and 9M students across the US use Accelerate Learning’s digital-first platform.

Providence has invested more than $32B in growth-oriented media, communications and technologies companies since it launched in 1989.

“Accelerate Learning’s purpose-built, engaging and easy-to-use platform has a demonstrated record of driving better outcomes for administrators and students,” said David Phillips, senior managing director at Providence.

He expects the increased emphasis on STEM in K-12 and the ongoing shift to digital-first providers will drive Accelerate Learning’s growth.
